    Default Can't keep apps turned off

    There are preinstalled apps I know I can't get rid of altogether, but even when I clear cache and data, turn them off, and remove the auto update they keep turning back on and installing updates. How do I stop this infuriating behavior?

    Default Re: Can't keep apps turned off

    By preinstalled apps do you mean ChatOn, Hangouts, Google Play Newstand, Samsug WatchON? If so. You can just go to the application then hit the Disable button.
